I joined the Bruno Manser Fund (BMF) in 2004 after completing my phD in history when I was looking for a job that would combine my interest in human rights and environmental issues. It was an interesting challenge to relaunch BMF’s campaigns and projects initiated by Bruno Manser in the 1990s. We first concentrated on community mapping and legal assistance to Sarawak’s indigenous communities, particularly the Penan in Baram and Limbang. In 2010, we launched a campaign against timber corruption as we felt that corruption had become a main driver of deforestation during Taib Mahmud’s 30-year tenure as Chief Minister.
